I bet it came on after a hard cornering or braking. Your oil level should be low.

You lose power because the car gets in to "limp back home" mode and doesn't shift.

When was the last time you got the oil checked or, better yet, changed?

The level checking procedure is;
With the car running at normal operating temp, raise the car parallel to the floor, and remove the filling plug on the right side of the transmission. The oil must be at the same level with the bottom of the hole. Do not over fill it..!
